​​​​4-Bay Modules

The M-Series 4-Bay Modules provide a simple, flexible way to test U.2, U.3, or EDSFF 1U Short SSDs within an OakGate expandable desktop appliance or 3U rackmount appliance. The module resides in the front compartment of the appliance and allows testing of up to four SSDs. The OakGate SVF Pro, supplied with the appliance, can exercise each SSD individually, as well as provide built-in power cycling and power measurement capabilities.
